While methicillin is very effective in treating most Staphylococcus infections, some strains have developed resistance to methicillin and can no longer be killed by this antibiotic. These resistant bacteria are called Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Over the last four decades, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) caused major problems in hospitals throughout the world and become highly endemic in many geographical areas. Classically, MRSA has been a nosocomial problem associated with long hospital stays, numerous or prolonged antibiotic courses, the presence of invasive devices and proximity to an already infected or colonized patients. In addition to their resistance against all ?-lactam antibiotics, MRSA strains may be resistant to several other classes of antibiotic, including the aminoglycosides, quinolones, clindamycin and erythromycin. Therefore, infections caused by these strains are serious and difficult to treat.
